In a bid to get healthier, I've started the great act of decaffeinating my extremely caffeinated body. This has seemed such a herculean task that for years I've planned to start it, only to chicken out and rush out to the nearest coffee or tea serving establishment (usually with a headache). I'm half dutch, meaning I was fed milked down tea in my bottle, so caffeine isn't so much a crutch as it is a part of my genetic makeup these days. And it was with a sad heart that I went into David's Tea yesterday and asked for some non-caffeinated suggestions.
One of the things I came home with was the dark and hearty Decaffeinator, which I was instructed to mix with coffee, gradually weaning myself off of the coffee and on to the Decaffeinator only. It smelled delish and so the hubby and I had it for our tea last night (yes, yes, I am THAT bad, I drink coffee all day and then around 8 pm move on to tea for the rest of the night. Dutch, remember?), which I wasn't overly worried about as tea has less caffeine then coffee and we often have low or caffeine free teas. But then, this morning I was hot and tired and my knee was aching so I opted to drink a cup of cold coffee instead of making a fresh pot with the Decaffeinator mixed in, and then right before I headed out to work I brewed a pot of the decaffeinator for drinking at work. Ah Ha! I said to myself, that will work.
Except it didn't.
I'm not sure I've stopped yawning since I got here and my eyelids could really use some toothpicks as props. Though I haven't hit a case of the wicked grumpies (work and no coffee can do that on occasion), I was coming on to the lovely this-lack-of-caffeine-blows headache and ran out for a hopefully lower caffeine iced coffee from McDonald's. They seemed a safer bet then say, Starbucks, who's caffeine levels are off the charts, like energy drink levels people. Seriously, Health Canada recommends I only drink 300mg of caffeine per day! Anywho, in case you're dying of curiosity here is a super comprehensive list of caffeine contents (I'm particularly amused by the caffeine levels of decaf coffee, and some of the caffeine free pops).
In other non-review, just about me news...*blush, waves* (exhaustimacated, remember? where were you for my decaffeination rant?), who else can't get enough of this Royal Tour business? As in, who cares about what their doing but what is Kate wearing now?! I swear, I've never been online over the weekend so much in my life. Every fifteen minutes I'm doing a quick check up to see if she's changed yet.
